      Pros

      Good benefits, before Covid at least. Decent vacation time (starts at 3 weeks)

      Cons

      Rampant sexism, sexual harassment, sexual assault by managers complete with retaliation from their bros and zero consequences. This is actually a pro if you're a sexual predator. Pay is average. Raises are less than inflation, zero after Covid. Bonuses are zero now too. Almost no chance of advancement. You have to be white, male, and German to move up.

      Pros

      Good flight benefits to Euro and flights out of Germany to global destinations. The name Lufthansa has value. Everyone speak english outside the U.S. Tulsa Octoberfest.

      Cons

      For a global company it's unbelievable how the business feels like you are always in Germany. They lack a global approach to business, basically if it works in Germany then it applies anywhere in the universe. If it's not decided by Germany it doesn't work. Terrible senior management structure in the U.S, the U.S management lacks vision and are extremely comfortable with status quo. Little technology exists in operations besides the Tulsa repair operation. The company lacks good supportive infrastructure that connects different business units, be prepared to be an excel guru, because everything is manual and human driven. The company culture is not a very supportive one, as every senior level role is expats out of Germany, therefore there are no real emotional connections to local teams. Each department or business units see themselves as their own company, sometimes it feels like there are many different companies in the same organization. Decision making takes forever, as Germany must approve everything, no IT support strategy, its almost a joke. Getting basic system support requires you to connect to Germany. Every section of the organization you will find employees who work for Lufthansa for 20 to 30 plus years, who are comfortable doing the minimum.

      Pros

      The company really cares about its employees. You can really tell how a company feels about its employees by they way they treat them during a crisis. Lufthansa has gone above and beyond to keep every single one during COVID 19. Flight benefits, good pay, improvement and promotion opportunities. Education benefits for further education. Flexible work schedules, Overtime if wanted. Friendly coworkers and company events. Good vacation. 401K is outstanding.

      Cons

      Must always be very precise in your work. In your job you can't afford to make mistakes. Must work under some time constraints at times. Everything is measured. They have some young managers which is good and bad. They promote within but this sometimes leads to younger and less experienced managers. If you just bear with them you will see that they all have your best interests in mind, but sometimes they don't always know the best way to handle things due to being young or lack of experience.
